Venkat Narayanaswamy

Associate Professor

Dr. Venkat Narayanaswamy is interested in scramjet propulsion, laser diagnostics, and combustion. Prior to joining NC State, he was a Postdoctoral Research Associate at UT Austin and RWTH Aachen, Germany. Dr. Narayanaswamy’s long term vision is contributing to the development of next-generation clean and efficient propulsion technologies.

Outside research, Dr. Narayanaswamy is interested in nature photography.
